Chronically Positive


Chronically Positive is a collection of the most popular blog posts and essays written by well-known chronic illness and health advocacy blogger and author, Ashley Boynes-Shuck, a.k.a. Arthritis Ashley.

As a companion book to her well-received humorous health memoir Sick Idiot, Chronically Positive dives into the deeper and more serious issues that come along with a lifetime of poor health — and it’s not always a laughing matter.

By balancing grace and hope with a healthy dose of realism, this truthful, raw, and honest glimpse into the daily realities of sickness will leave you feeling touched and inspired … and quite possibly in awe of what it takes to live a Chronically Positive life.
